Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa (85 g)
  • 1/2 cup cooked or canned black beans (95 g)
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels (70 g)
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley (4 tbsp or about 15 g), finely chopped
  • 12 cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 red onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp vinaigrette

Instructions

  1. Cook quinoa according to package directions. Take a look at my how to cook quinoa post.
  2. Allow to cool the quinoa at room temperature or wash it with cold water. You can also make the quinoa the day before.
  3. Add all the salad ingredients to a large mixing bowl and stir until well combined.
  4. Serve chilled or at room temperature. Keep leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days.

Notes

  • I cooked the quinoa following my how to cook quinoa post, so the nutritional information has been calculated by using 1 tablespoon of soy sauce or tamari. You can also add salt to taste instead.
